Otterly Amazing!

Thursday, March 29th 2012

Finally, the first picture of an Otter has been captured down on Risedale Beck.  Our volunteer Ken has been trying to capture a picture of the species for several weeks now with his remotely activated camera.  Spraint is found regularly and Otters have been seen from time to time - but never before have we had evidence like this.  Many thanks to Ken for his expertise and for sharing it with us all.

The camera also managed to capture this image of a Roe Deer doe and a Fox, but the latter image was not the best.  What is interesting is that they are all crossing the beck at the same place as can be seen from the track on the opposite bank!
